The owners of Kaya's restaurant in Havertown also sell their food at the  Media Farmers' Market, which runs every Thursday through November.

Also, check out the Fall Fundraising Harvest Dinner at Kaya's.

Name:
  Jessica and Mike Hawthorne

Business:  Kaya's Fusion Cuisine 

Business Location:  5 Brookline Boulevard in Havertown

Year Started: 2008

How Long at Farmers Market:
First year

What's in Season:
Soups for the fall like butternut squash, truffle wild mushroom and cream of crab

Most Popular Item:
Handmade crab crakes and fried tomatoes

Why Bring Your Goods Here:
We like the way the town of Media responds to food in general, the community really supports it. There are a lot of foodies in this area. It's close enough to our restaurant to access a new market, for anyone who may not know the restaurant is there. But far enough way that we're not competing with our restaurant either. 

Best Part of Farmers Market:
Everyone likes crab cakes so I can trade with the other vendors, which is nice. But on a business level, it's great to see people get excited about what we're doing and their response. It's a nice addition. 

Shameless Plug: 
We're the pioneers on Brookline Boulevard in Havertown. The block is currently getting a facelift with new businesses and I like to think we were on the pulse of that. We'll have crab cake sandwiches, soup and fried sweet potato ribbons at Haverford Township Day on Oct. 5. Find them on Facebook too and give them a 'Like.'
